How do I notify a distribution list when an attachment is added?

We have a page in our Confluence 7.3.5 Data Center where engineering posts release notes. I want to be able to notify specific DLs (distribution lists) whenever a new attachment is added to the page based on the files name. Are there any add-on apps or internal functionality through APIs which would allow us to get notifications to a DL?
Has anyone scripted a process like this to update DLs on page changes?

Hi @msilberman_arlo_com ,

I can imagine doing it using ScriptRunner for Confluence. You can create custom script listener - there's AttachmentCreateEvent you can react on, but it will take some groovy programming.

How exactly the request to the a DL look like?

Thank you.

Thanks for the shout-out @Hana Kučerová ! We're actually working on a feature right now to make sending mail like this easier. It should be similar to the ScriptRunner for Jira & ScriptRunner for Bitbucket feature.

No promises on timelines, but "soon". ;) Keep an eye on our release notes for updates.
